Comment period for proposal to extend workers’ compensation coverage to gig workers closing soon

The comment period for the Queensland Government’s proposal to include some gig economy workers in Queensland’s workers’ compensation scheme closes on July 5, 2019.

The Government has released a consultation regulatory impact statement (RIS) seeking feedback on whether the workers’ compensation scheme should cover certain gig economy workers, such as work on demand ride share drivers and food deliverers.

The RIS also considers whether the workers’ compensation scheme should cover bailee taxi and limousine drivers.

You are invited to have your say about this proposal and the Government will have regard to issues raised in written submissions responding to this RIS.

Written submissions to this  Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) can be lodged via:
